In 2019 the Leibniz University Hannover created a working group called "Barrier-Free University"   which will examine where barrier-free entrances- spatial as well as websites and within teaching- have to be established.
What are the current measures and have they been successful? How does one organise networks guided by knowledge?

Here you will find informations on the work of the working group, best practice examples as well as guidelines, regulations and contact persons.

Innovative suggestions and ideas are gladly accepted.
